This tiny cityscape wall sculpture is called Itty Bitty City 4: Harvest Moon. I mounted this work on a powder blue coloured ceramic tile, then on a flat piece of cement. Small cylinders of various shapes and sizes form the ‘buildings’, which are set along the banks of a rusty metal ‘river’. All these bits and bobs I found on the streets of Melbourne during my daily walks.I am a found object assemblage artist and jewellery designer, creating wall sculptures, 3D sculptures and brooches. I limit my ‘raw materials’ to the metal, wood, tiles and plastic that I gather from streets and skips.Many of my works are inspired by the Melbourne skyline, especially at sunrise and sunset. Often I try to incorporate ‘natural features’ – a bent metal strip that suggests a meandering river, a sprocket washer that transforms into the sun, or a broken tile that becomes a mountain.My more abstract works are stimulated by the found objects themselves, which I often place in juxtaposition. At other times, I emphasise their rusted, scratched or variegated surfaces.My art is inspired by a strong interest in sustainability through repurposing and upcycling. My hope is that this artwork makes you smile and, at the same time, reminds you of the 5Rs to help our planet: refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose and recycle.

Sculptures & brooches from upcycled street and beach found objects

My name is Nancy D Lane. I am a found object assemblage artist working as NancyDee Sculptures. I love creating sculptures, brooches and art magnets from the metal, wood, tile and plastic I find on streets and beaches – mostly in Melbourne, though on my travels as well.My works range in size from less than 2×2cm to more than 2 metres. My art is inspired by the challenge of happenstance, using only the materials I pick up on my daily walks.I work as an artist in residence at River Studios in West Melbourne. I have had 7 solo exhibitions and participated in more than 60 group exhibitions. Most importantly, I am commited to sustainability and hope that my creative use of unloved and unwanted trash will serve as a reminder of the 5Rs: refuse, reduce, repurpose, reuse, and recycle.
